http://henhousestudios.com/Tibor Jankay - The Art Of Survival documents the life of a 94 year old Hungarian born artist who used his artistic skills to survive the Holocaust. In one instance, Tibor escaped death using a sculptors chisel to dig a hole in the bottom of a train bound for Aushwitz. The horrific experiences of war had caused him great suffering, so to ease his pain he moved to Venice Beach, and surrounded himself with images of love and beauty.In California, Tibor spent much of his time along the world famous Venice Boardwalk where he became a mentor to thousands of artists, inspiring them with his stories of survival and forgiveness. Tibor was a rare artist in that he refused to sell his works and was always reluctant to exhibit them. Included in this film are these very paintings, sketches and sculptures that have until now been virtually hidden from the public eye.
